Earl Warren College at UC San Diego

Earl Warren College was established in 1974 as the fourth undergraduate college at UC San Diego.

Named after the former California Governor and Chief Justice of the United States, the College continues the legacy of Earl Warren by encouraging students to explore the relationship between leadership and social justice. Warren College students represent all majors offered at UC San Diego, and the college motto, Toward a Life in Balance, is integrated into Warren College’s academic requirements and student events to provide a well-rounded university experience.

Warren College Academic Advising offers personalized academic advising services to all Warren students. The staff of professionals and peer advisors assists students with understanding and complying with general-education requirements and academic policies, educational planning, and referrals to appropriate campus resources.

The Dean of Student Affairs Office staff is dedicated to working with students to develop opportunities for engagement, learning, and discovery that support classroom efforts as well as foster growth and development outside of the classroom. The dean’s office provides advising support to many of the Warren College student organizations and the Warren College Student Council and works to promote health and safety, community responsibility, and academic integrity efforts.

The Warren Residential Life Office is a resource that provides students with transitional support and helps foster personal growth. The office employs 30 Resident Assistants who host programs that enhance educational experiences, promote the UC San Diego Principles of Community, and engage students in dialogue around issues of diversity and social justice.

Earl Warren College offers students several co-curricular programs to enhance their academic and personal development. The quarterly High Table Dinner, hosted by the Provost, engages students and faculty in an evening of fine dining and conversation that enriches faculty-student relationships. The Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service and Parade provide students a chance to positively impact the San Diego community by volunteering at sites around San Diego.

While reaching their highest academic potential, students also need a chance to socialize. Warren College student organizations offer events throughout the year including trips to Disneyland, Open Mic Nights to showcase student talent, and tailgates before athletic events. One of most popular annual events is the semi-formal dance, which is held in Spring Quarter.
